When I was an angry, obnoxious teenager, I memorized William Blake’s “A Poison Tree”. It epitomized my “Me vs. Them” outlook on life. My general demeanor was spiteful, vengeful, and sullen. Not surprisingly, I was miserably unhappy.
I was also ignorant. I did not know that my thinking increased my suffering. I did not know that
my anger fed the thoughts and turned them into a belief that the world is hard, cruel, unforgiving, and dangerous. I was a brilliant conversationalist, but the conversations cut to the core, often leaving blood on the floor. It was a strange form of amusement arising out of a false sense of superiority.
When I was in my mid–twenties, pop psychology came up with a cute little saying …… Thoughts are Things. I had to stop and think about that one.
If thoughts are things, then the ‘things’ in my life had to have arisen from my thoughts. I reasoned that if I could change my thoughts, my life would change.
I became kinder. My life evened out. My face relaxed. Life was much easier. I was happier, but I was bored out of my gourd. It no longer amused me to leave people lying amidst the wreckage of their own weak thinking. I followed path after path, going nowhere. I could not turn back, but I did not know what to turn to.
It was as if He sent Cupid with a quiver full of arrows, piercing my heart with all of them.
God is Love.
The Master Keys 15.11 “It is love which imparts vitality to thought and thus enables it to germinate.”
Impregnate your thoughts with Love. Succumb to a rising spiral of the miraculous. The more you love, the more your life transforms. Mine certainly did. My treasures came from within an eternal fountain of love arising deep within my soul. I began seeing beauty everywhere, seeing the miracle that is life.
Love vitalizes my thoughts. I am Happy for No Reason, annoying some folks as a result of chronic bliss.
Now, in my 6th decade, I discovered the Master Keys, and discovered that the power of love within me can be consciously directed to create an even more amazing life. I learned to choose what and how to build my thoughts, impregnate them with love so that they emanate forms hitherto only imagined.
I invite you to fall prey to Cupid’s Arrows, combining that love with the mastery of choosing what you build with your thoughts. The next Master Keys Experience begins in September, 2015.
